Reward boosted to $1,750 for bear death information
The reward for information leading to the arrest of individuals involved in the killing of a bear has grown. Several organizations and individuals have added to the initial $500 reward, and now the incentive stands at $1,750.
On or about February 24, conservation wardens with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources received a call about a dead bear. The bear was found freshly killed with its head cut off and the body in the ditch off of Rice Lake Road in Somerset Township.
